I’m gobsmacked. Not only have I always wanted to use that word in a sentence, I’m also shocked that it took me this long to actually feature a chip recipe. My blog is called DELICIOUS CHIP. Come on, now! This simple guide to making perfect, crispy, delicious potato chips is also a small celebration of my new, hipper site banner. So without further ado, here’s how you can make your own delicious chips:
- The thinner the chip, the crispier it will be! Start by slicing your potatoes with a mandolin slicer. (A food processor with a slicing attachment also works well, though the thickness may not be adjustable.)
- Once your potatoes are sliced, soak them in cold water for 30 minutes. Rinse and pat dry.
- Heat vegetable oil to 375 degrees. I highly recommend using a thermometer or a deep fryer that has a temperature gauge and basket. This is for safety and will prevent your oil from getting too hot.
- Carefully fry your chips in small batches until golden brown and crisp. This should take between 3-5 minutes. Once ready, drain on paper towels and sprinkle with salt.
It’s that easy! I like to top my chips with seasoned salt. I also like to dip my chips in ketchup. And here’s a good chip idea: Grub in Hollywood makes chocolate chip cookies sprinkled with crushed potato chips. Salty and sweet - sounds amazing, right?
